to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. earlier today, general david petraeus said that the cia talking points meant for the susan rice appearance recentlyally contain the information that there was evidence of al qaeda's elements involved in this attack. but it appears as if those talking points were altered by the white house or somebody close to the white house to remove any reference to al qaeda's involvement in the attacks. we have yet to discover who has changed the talking points to make the president look for favorable and mislead you, by falsely labeling the 9/11 attacks over spontaneous mob over the video. petraeus has no idea what was provided to rice or who was the author of the talking points that she used that, he had no idea she was going on the talk shows until the white house announced it one or two days before. now, the looming question is, in this coverup, who did it? now, earlier, fox's own katherineererridge explained where the talking points went once they left the cia. >> what we are told about the talking points is that it went through an inter-agency review, including
are right, it is developing fast and furious, the c.i.a. director is out but the questions for our nation's intelligence security have only begun. who is in charge right now? growing fears bad guy could take advantage of this american intelligence power vacuum. welcome, everyone, i am neil cavuto at fox on top of a black eye for the c.i.a., gem general's departure is the latest between benghazi and what intelligence officials knew and didn't know and growing unrest in the middle east and what the c.i.a. knows and doesn't know. a shot out of left field that leaves my guest questioning the timing of all of this, lieutenant colonel on the phone. >>caller: the timing is too perfect, the obama administration, as the administration claimed it was coincidence that the benghazi consulate was attacked on the anniversary of september 11th now it is convince dense the affair surfaces right after the election, not before but right after and before the intelligence chiefs go to capitol hill to get grilled. as an old intelligence analyst, and i could be totally wrong this is my interpretation, the admi
looks at whether the mistress of the former c.i.a. director had classified information on her home computer. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge tells us how some republican lawmakers are invoking washington's most famous scandal ever. but we begin with chief white house correspondent ed henry on the libya attack and who should get the blame. good evening. >> good evening, chris. temperature was raised today as the republicans said they want watergate style hearings in to benghazi. the president fired back saying if you want to blame someone, blame me, not my staff. when i pressed him today at the news conference what he did to save lives the president did not want to get into details. his first full news conference at the white house in eight months, president obama raced to the defense of his u.n. ambassador susan rice. republicans vowed to block her from becoming the next secretary of state. >> for them to go after the-up ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to besmirch her rep
was going to resign from the c.i.a. guest: well, we still don't know too much of the detail about what was going on with the f.b.i. there are a lot of reports out there, and, in fact, it is true that part of this investigation by the f.b.i. had to do with the question of whether somebody was improperly accessing petraeus' personal email accounts. you know, however, the sources that we spoke to said that wasn't really the entirety of the investigation or the thing that really got it rolling. but at some point, for whatever reason, the f.b.i. became concerned that somebody was getting into his account. now, you can see a variety of reasons why they might be worried about that, being the head of the c.i.a.. he's certainly someone that you would not want hackers or foreign intelligence people getting into any of his accounts, personal or professional. the f.b.i. apparently was exploring that, and in the course of going through these emails, found a lot of material that seemed to indicate that he was engaged in some kind of an affair. i think it was not immediately clear because of the lang
at damage control. u.n. ambassador susan rice's trip to capitol hill, she and the acting cia director, michael morel, meeting with republican senators john mccain, kelly ayotte and lindsay graham, who were not pleased with what they heard. >> it is clear that the information she gave the american people was incorrect when she said it was a spontaneous demonstration triggered by a hateful video. it was not, and there was compelling evidence at the time that that was certainly not the case, including statements by libyans as well as other americans who are fully aware that people don't bring mortars and rocket-propelled grenades to spontaneous demonstrations. >> in a statement after the meeting, ambassador rice said that neither she nor anyone in the administration intended to mislead the american people. but the breaking news concerns the part in her sunday talk show statements that substituted the word "extremists" for al qaeda. remember, the administration said she was working from edited talking points. the question is, who did the editing? today, the senators say that acting direct
how intelligence community is being affected by the resignation of david petraeus as head of the c.i.a. then former senator evan bayh on the fiscal cliff. then senior editor of foreign policy magazine will be on. ♪ host: good morning, welcome to "washington journal." the fbi investigation that led to the resignation of general david petraeus has expanded to general john allen. the impact of all this on the intelligence community and national security will be part of several hearings on capitol hill later this week. lawmakers return to washington today amid a shake-up of the president obama national security team, facing the looming issue of the so-called fiscal cliff. that is where we want to begin today this morning. president obama will meet later on with labor leaders who are insisting that the president not compromise on cuts to medicare and social security. what is your take on this? avoiding this -- avoiding the fiscal cliff? host: remember, you can send us a clear message, post your comments on facebook, or send us an e-mail, journal@c-span.org. courtesy of the newseum, washin
and then it ends up toppling the head of the cia? >> cyber security is a huge problem. if someone is hacking into the drergt of the cia, you need to know that. general petraeus, who is the director of the cia, and others have questioned about his e-mail account. the fbi is going to look into that, and they're going to try to determine is something unauthorized happening here? now, they stumbled upon something totally different, but to your question, no, i don't feel badly if the fbi is going to make sure that director of the cia is not being hacked into in an unauthorized fashion. >> petraeus, they had found -- they stumbled across the petraeus issue when she complained there was no mention of petraeus. what surprises me is that these people are still sending emails. >> yeah. >> that goes to judgment. if these emails are threatening, i'm want concerned that the fbi has the capacity to make a base-line judgment, is this a real problem that might do damage to this woman and, therefore, we ought to at least do a preliminary investigation? i mean, think more and more crimes that have been person
. >>> and david petraeus on the hot seat. the now ex-cia chief heads to capitol hill this morning with members of congress demanding answers. >>> good morning. welcome to "early start" everyone. happy friday. glad to see you. i'm john berman. >> nice to see you. i'm zonaida sambolin. >>> the i realsraelis pounding targets while palestinian militants continue to launch rockets into israel. israel calls up reservists in preparation for war. >> ben joins us by phone this morning. egypt's prime minister paid a visit to gaza. somehow that going so far? >> well, it was originally planned it would be a three-hour cease fire while the egyptian prime minister was making this visit to gaza. according to our sources, it doesn't appear either side significantly reduced their level of military activity in gaza. certainly before the sun came up there was an intense air attack on gaza itself. it may have been lessened somewhat in the morning while the prime minister was touring gaza. but after he's gone, it's expected to get back to the same pace. >> there are elections coming up not too long from now in isr
, almost two months after the terrorist attack that killed four americans, the cia has released a new timeline, a timeline of its actions suggesting it played a larger role in trying to save those four americans. my next guest says it is time for this administration, this president to come clean. my guest is admirable team of admiral james lyons, retired commander of the u.s. pacific fleet. i want to turn to that deadline. tuesday, election day, the eight week anniversary of the attack. now we have a timeline from the cia. your thoughts about both that timeline and the timeliness of it. >> well, i have looked over the timeline. of course, at least certain things out. for example, we have resources which were not utilized. one that we utilized in the past is having a jet aircraft fly over, which could have flown over the consulate in in full afterburner. it would have scattered the crowd about as valuable time and, perhaps, maybe save some lives. the second thing was that it citronella. it was 130 man marine force a recall and units that was fully equipped and ready to go. i am told th
petraeus' replacement at the cia mike morell met tuesday. he'll speak with counterparts on the house side today about the scandals, the national security implications, why congress wasn't told soon er and, also, e assume benghazi will come up. joining me now the national investigative correspondent michael isikoff and capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. kelly, let me start with you before i get to mike on the latest on the general scandal itself. congress continues to basically wring their hands over why didn't they know sooner on this front. are they getting any more answers today? >> reporter: well, they expect to get more answers as there is now a kind of greater spirit of providing answers. we've seen the top people from the cia, the acting director who was here yesterday back again today, also the deputy director of the fbi coming to talk to the key members who are on those committees. they would have jurisdiction here, who believe they should have been in the loop at some point. so that's one issue. but a lot of this gets conflated with concerns about what actually happened
pretty tough on her already. >> for sure. and so susan rice is smartly bringing the active cia director with her to answer those questions. i'd be surprised if it's not civil or collegial as these things tended to be in my experience. if it isn't, that would be an exception worth noting. >> now that these meetings are happening, is there any doubt in your mind she's the leading contender? robert? >> of course she's the leading contender. no question about it -- yes, of course, can you hear me? >> yeah. >> hello? >> hi. >> of course, she's a leading contender, the reason why is -- because she has the confidence of the president, she certainly has the relationship and the experience. look, there's only two people really that are in play here, that is senator john kerry and susan rice. there's no question about it she's qualified. however, i'll remind you and the audience that senators do have a constitutional role in this, and that is to advise and consent. the question is whether or not she's able to alleviate the concerns to pass confirmation. >> i'm not sure we have a little bit of a d
and the upper echelons of our military. as you know, former four star general and c.i.a. chief david petraeus, here he is, quit last week after admitting that he had an affair with his biographer, paula broadwell. now, paula broadwell allegedly sent threatening e-mails to jill kelley who is a "tampa socialite" who did charitable work for the military. broadwell apparently thought that kelley was also having an affair with petraeus. and upon receiving broadwell's e-mails, kelley contacted the fbi which began investigating. now, jill kelley also has hired crisis communications expert judy smith. she has worked with monica lewinsky with kobe bryant and with former senator larry craig. and that all has a lot of folks scratching their heads. why would a woman who was the target of a nasty e-mail or two need a reputation fixer? well, it turns out that while investigating petraeus, the fbi uncovered 20,000 to 30,000 potentially inappropriate pages of documents mostly e-mails that kelley exchanged with general john allen. and w
on monday. >> greta: tonight, if i thought former cia director david petraeus' testimony would clear things up -- think again. general petraeus finally telling congress what he knows about benghazi terror attack, but did his testimony get the obama administration in even more hot water? >> a short time ago, the former cia director left capitol hill after five hours of testimony, closed, classified testimony before the house & senate intelligence committees. >> general pet petraeus' briefing of comprehensive. it added to our ability to make judgments about what is clearly a failure of intelligence. >> the talking points were must have more specific about the al qaeda involvement, but the final ones indicate even though it was clearly evident to the cia that there was al qaeda involvement. >> talking points prepared for her. >> said it was al qaeda. >> sometime between september 14 and september 16, somebody took the al qaeda element out and put the video in. >> the question we have is who made the changes and why? we haven't been able to get that answer. >> petraeus is saying, i said it was
>>> president obama has named michael morell as the acting cia director. it is not clear who will testify on next week's benghazi attack. >>> many are questioning how many with an impeccable military record could be brought down by an extramarital afare. joining me now jack jacobs. welcome to you, colonel. i know you have known this man for an awfully long time. he was a cadet while you were teaching him at west point. talk about him in general as a man and general. >> very smart kid. spoke very well, always did very well. full of energy. very smart in thought as generals, potential generals should. far, far ahead of what's happening right now. always thought of consequences, which is something of an irony in the circumstances. and not surprisingly rose very, very quickly up through the ranks. >> which by that description you find shocking this if he's a man who looks at consequences of actions. this is something that took him down not as a result of him trying to cover up an affair but fbi being alert today look into some level of impropriety. >> yeah. my understanding is th
, this is all happening while we have no cia director here at home. >>> first up today, in his first news conference since being re-elected, president obama, with rhetoric sometimes reminiscent of his tax-the-rich campaign mantra, he appeared to dig in his heels on extending tax cuts for the wealthiest americans. take a listen. >> there is a package to be shaped. and i'm confident that parties -- folks of good will in both parties can make that happen, but what i'm not going to do is to extend bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% that we can't afford and according to economists, will have the least positive impact on our economy. >> all right. i don't know about you, but to me, that sounds like a fairly staunch and unwavering position. and yet, the president did insist he's staying open to new ideas. take a listen to this one. >> i am open to new ideas, if the republican counterparts or some democrats have a great idea for us to raise revenue, maintain progressivity, make sure the middle class isn't getting hit, reduces our deficit, encourages growth, i'm not going to just slam the door in
this morning. the headline in the "financial times" weekend edition, petraeus resigns from c.i.a. over affair. joining us to talk to us about the story on the phone is the white house reporter for politico. here to talk to us more about the resignation, josh, welcome to the program. so, tell us, how did this whole story break? it came about fairly quickly after some discussion or some rumors started circulating early in the morning yesterday that general petraeus might have been on his way out. guest: yeah, we heard -- the first i heard of it were some somewhat sketchy reports on msnbc yesterday with andrea mitchell saying that petraeus was involved in some, you know, fairly weighty discussions about his future with the white house and that his future status was not entirely clear. at that point, what people thought was that the discussions probably had something to do with the episode in benghazi in september and, you know, the intelligence that flowed or failed to flow from that to the white house in a timely fashion. however, within the period of an hour or so, really while the white house
was use talking points, pulled out originally by the cia signed off by the intelligence community, those were requested by the house committee. the intelligence committee sign off of it. the key was there were unclassified talking points at an early stage. i do not think she should be pelerine for this. she did what i would have done or anybody else would have done that was going on a weekend show. you would have said what talking points can i use? you get an unclassified version. i just remember -- i just read it to the committee what i was going to tell you and questions asked. to be sure it did not violate our rules. this particularly is for people in public office because you are used to answering questions candidly to have to be restricted to what is unclassified. is very difficult for your >> did he talk about his resignation? >> [indiscernible] >> i think it is making a very divisive -- we have seen wrong intelligence before. it all surrounded our going into iraq. a lot of people were killed based on bad intelligence. i do not think that is fair game. i think mistakes get made. th
cia director general p at a capital hearing. we begin with president obama in southeast asia at this hour. the president began his three-nation tour in thailand at a news conference with the thai prime minister, he defended israel's right to defend itself but expressed concern over a ground war. >> we are fully supportive of israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes and work places and potentially killing civilians. we will continue to support israel's right to defend itself. >> chief white house correspondent chuck todd is traveling with the president. good sunday to you. what else do we hear from the president on israel and otherwise? >> a couple of things on israel, he made a plea to allies of the palestinians in particular. the president of egypt, the prime minister of turkey said if you would like to see a two-state solution in the near future, a palestinian state next to israel this has to deescalate now. the president expressing this fear if hamas doesn't stop rocket attacks on to israel's soille he fears left unsaid is israel may retaliat
are out over the resignation of cia director david petraeus. richard wolffe will weigh in on that. >>> and the republicans try to revamp their message on immigration reform. they want to turn protesters into supporters. find out why they could be making a huge mistake. stay with us. >>> welcome back to "the ed show." the fallout continues over the resignation of former cia director general petraeus. petraeus stepped down citing an extramarital affair. an investigation began over the summer when jill kelley, a petraeus family friend, contacted the agency after receiving anonymous harassing e-mails. nbc news investigative correspondent michael isikoff describes what was in those e-mails. >> they accuse her of improper socializing. but they have references to the comings and goings to general petraeus. >> the fbi followed the computer trail that led them to paula broadwell. both broadwell and petraeus admitted they were having an affair after reviewing evidence prosecutors concluded no crimes were committed, but now some members of congress are saying that they or president obama sho

, that there are no unanswered questions. the senators saying this morning the acting c.i.a. director morell told them the al-qaeda references were dropped in the c.i.a. talking points at the request of the f.b.i. because the bureau did not want to compromise an ongoing criminal investigation. but late this afternoon, c.i.a. officials called to correct the record, that it was actually them. rice met with senator joe lieberman who asked if she was coached by the add f before her talk hoe appearances. >> she said no, she was not given messaging points at all by the white house prior to her appearance on those sound morning shows. >> so the meeting today did not settle the matter. it certainly is not as far as these republicans are concerned. >> shepard: what's the response from the administration? >> in that written statement, rice who was joined by the acting c.i.a. director on the hill, said, quote, we explained the talking points provided by the intelligence community and the initial assessment upon which they were based were incorrect in the key respect there was no protest or demonstration in benghazi. al
.o.d., department of state, cia, should be interviewed by select committees to get the same story from each group >> okay, the fiscal cliff, if we don't do something by the end of the year, taxes go up on everybody. the child tax change, the marriage tax changes. everybody gets hit and hard. the military will get major-league cut, beginning january 2013, it will be the smallest navy since 1915, the smallest air force in the history of the country. so doing nothing is a catastrophe. here's what i think is fair to ask the republicans. we have 15% of gdp in revenue. the historical average is 18% going to the federal government. one way to get more money is cap deductions. if you limit deductions to $50,000 per punish person, to take care of the missed-class person and then some, you could raise $750 billion in new revenue. to do what? to pay down the debt. we need more money to get out of debt. and to lower tax rates for corporate rates and other rates to create more jobs. i am willing to put revenue on the table to pay down debt and create a better economy. but my democratic friends have to reform
meeting, the director of the cia told us that the changes in these talking points had come from the fbi, and then called us back a number of hours later and said, no, it was done by the cia. do you mean that all these weeks later they still don't know who made the changes in the talking points? and why is that important? because the impression that the american people got from ambassador rice's comments, that this was a spontaneous demonstration, triggered by a hateful video, that was not true. finally, by the way, after our meeting, ambassador rice admitted for the first time that that was not true. so it -- >> greta: why didn't she admit that six weeks ago? that's what i don't understand. you have to pull every single detail out of it. she should have said that six weeks ago. why not say it publicly? why is it behind closed doors with senators? >> we still don't who made the changes in the talking points. i asked the director of the cia how many analysts are there in the cia. i don't think this is classified. he said 2,500. now, wouldn't you think that one of those analysts would have
